About the artist:
Born 1987 in Azamgarh, Bhuwal Prasad received his Bachelor’s from Faculty of Visual Arts BHU, Varanasi in 2010 followed by Master’s degree from College of Art, Delhi in 2012. Bhuwal Prasad is an award winning contemporary Indian artist. He was drawn towards drawing and sketching at a very young age and was encouraged by his family to pursue his passion. His unique style and his take on subjects quickly won him several accolades. The masquerades that people of tribal areas use to either camouflage with the forests or as a cultural and traditional ritual is the theme that the artist loves drawing. He makes them very colourful at times and sometimes, he would just use blacks and whites. He has participated in many group shows.
